    In the grand scheme of things, audio engineering is a pretty mysterious field, at least for most people. When asked what I do for a living, “I’m an audio engineer” is often met with puzzlement, so I quickly amend, “You know, I’m a sound person. I run sound for concerts and events.” For many folks, this is when the light comes on – one woman said, “Oh, you’re the guy, like at my church, in the back who turns all… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Whenever making new technology purchases or technology upgrades, it’s important to think through the reasoning behind them as well as the actual purchase/upgrade process. Here are five things to think about when evaluating technology. Does the technology further or enhance our mission as a church? In other words, what do you feel you can’t do now (or aren’t doing well) that is critical to your churches specific mission? Of course, this presupposes you… View this post

    Many moons ago, I was approached by a very talented local musician with a common request. “Can you do a project for me? I don’t really have any money, but…” Just fill in that last part with whatever excuse, incentive or promise you feel like pulling from your own experiences. Since these requests arrived so frequently, I developed one of my core philosophies about business. It didn’t matter if it concerned studio projects, live shows or installations; the concept is… View this post

    “Getting ahead without being a jerk” is actually what our young friend said he wanted to discuss. I will use the pseudonym “Oz Man” for him due to the volatile nature of his dilemma! Notice that he is so distraught that he offers no salutation! At the age of 17, I entered my journey of wanting to be a sound professional. At age 27… … that makes it a decade later, right? … I have gone to “rock and roll… View this post

    Excerpted from the excellent “Make Mine Music” by Bruce Swedien, available from musicdispatch.com. It’s my opinion that after all is said and done, psychoacoustics is really why we are interested in recording music in the first place. Psychoacoustics can be defined simply as the psychological study of hearing. The true aim of psychoacoustic research is to find out how our hearing works. In other words, to discover how sounds entering the ear are processed by the ear and the brain… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   There are times when you didn’t learn the right way to mix a vocal or an instrument or a band. That’s OK. You learned. You moved on.  But then there are the lies you tell yourself over and over. You don’t learn. You can’t move on. Your work suffers. WAKE UP!* *Any judgment on my part is because I’ve believed some myself. I don’t live in a glass house…at least not… View this post
